basically all the recovery data(software , drivers ) is stored on a seperate partition on the hdd and then press f11 or f8 or other at bios screen and then it reads the restore partition and then restore windows xp or whatever was factory installed , also my laptop has an option to make a restore dvd and then gain back space lost to recovery partition

it is mainly an OEM thing

Yeah, thats what i was thinking, a clean install from an image on the HDD. If it wont boot into it when it normally does, then its possible that the partition with the image on is corrupt or something.

maybe it dosent have an image on the hdd and just uses a restore dvd , or i have seen in the case of a lot of second hand pc's the restore partition is removed by the shop e.g. or have you changed the hdd
